Today's visit to East Sooke Park

Glenn my husband, and I just got back from East Sooke Park a few hours ago. We thought we'd take advantage of one of the last fantastic days of summer, and check out the phenomenon of the birds of prey circling to get catch a thermal current to get across the strait as they start their migration south. While there and on the way, I got some of the best shots for upcoming paintings...I am so excited to get started.

Just back from Nova Scotia

My family and friends were my priority while visiting back home I was there for almost three weeks. Unfortunately, my paintings were only brought out twice to work on, and having a deadline of September 12, did not allow me to finish any of them in time to put into the Sidney Show.
As disappointing as that was, I realised after some reflection and positive input by my hubby...there is always next year. I painted throughout the day when i got back, and was very uptight trying to meet the deadline. My Glenn is such a doll and so pragmatic...he was the one who suggested not trying to kill myself to get it in on time, a rushed job usually shows.

So, my next step...putting paintings in a roaming gallery through the Coast Collective. And that is exciting.
